There was this time in first grade when they were testing the fire alarms at my school Wheelock 7004ts and the teacher said "let's dance".

I'm too busy trying to get away from them with their high-pitched shrieking and then getting interested in their different pitches to dance.

I tried, during a fire drill when we were outside the building... Yeah know that I gave up because it's hard to be synchro with the speed of the Nfs32001 afnor tone.. I know of a guy who did but for the life of me I can't remember where I saw that

(I have no idea when it comes down to the fire alarms y'all have 'ere in USA)

Depends on what code. I imagine march time you would have to dance fast but code-3 will be a bit slower. Have no clue how you could dance to something that is blaring loud continuously though.

That might be something that people could dance to and get a good beat in as long as it isn't ear-piercing loud then people can concentrate.
